Introducing Moonlight Mele

For last week’s photo shoot, we skipped the postcard beaches and found our way to a tiny beach tucked away behind one of Oahu’s swankiest neighborhoods. We traded crowds and sweltering sunshine for quieter shores and shady spots and here, we found the perfect place to shoot our newest collection, Moonlight Mele.

At San Lorenzo Bikinis, our signature approach to swimwear is a ‘less is more’ attitude, meaning we’re always aiming for the tiniest tanlines possible! (Any lover of the Caged Thong or V Knot will vouch for that!) However for this collection, we thought of the beach babes who feel that sometimes, only ‘more is more’. For Moonlight Mele, we reimagined our favorite styles with a little extra something – extra coverage.

 img_7983_redit

Look familiar? We couldn’t resist bringing back the knotted detailing of the High Neck Interlace top (one of our signature styles) but for the Knotted Strap Brief bottoms, we kept comfort and coverage on our minds and were a little more generous with the fabric.

img_7967_redit

Why is it such a struggle to find a ‘kini that is a showstopper but also gives your buns a little break from the sun? The search ends here with the new Bow Back Brief. Call us classic but we’re head over heels for White.  

img_7886_redit

Lush greens and cloudy weather match the collection’s moodier colorways such as Moonlight. Don’t get us wrong, we love sun kisses and tan lines but sometimes, a beach babe needs a little time to cool off in the shade.

img_8165_redit

The Sienna colorway first graced us with its presence in the Ilha de Coco collection and has been turning heads ever since! As an ode to those ethereal seaside sunsets, bringing it back was a no-brainer.

img_8043_redit

We’re all about true blues, which is why we’re so stoked about the new Azure colorway! Can we take a second to rave about the way it makes our model’s eyes pop? Blue-eyed babes, this is YOUR color!

img_7879_redit

The ocean is a girl’s best friend but let’s be honest: when it comes to water sports or choppier days at sea, it can be a battle to keep the waves from stealing your ‘kini. (When we say we love ‘minimal coverage’, we definitely don’t mean THAT minimal!) One final plus about the Moonlight Mele collection? Whether you’re dazed on shore or shredding some waves, these pieces are here to stay! Explore the Moonlight Mele collection, available exclusively online.

Meet our Mind Bali Soul Muse: Charlotte D’Alessio

Meet the third muse in our ‘Meet our Mind Bali Soul’ series, Charlotte D’Alessio! With just one look, Charlotte, just 18 years old, won us over with her bronzed beauty and piercing green eyes. We knew right away she would embody every bit of our Mind Bali Soul collection and be a perfect muse.

This shoot was our first time working with Charlotte, and it was one of our favorites for a few reasons!

Now… a shoot with a green eyed babe and bikinis wouldn’t be the same without a corgi puppy. We invited Miss Chibi to join the mix. Emily Wang is the master mind behind Chibi’s photogenic talents and not to mention that she gets to cuddle her up every day!

Talking about bedroom goals… Charlotte’s  white, dreamy bedroom was just the perfect location to capture her and the Mind Bali Soul collection.

SL: We love the beachy-boho vibes that your room has… The second we saw it on Instagram we knew it would be the absolute perfect location. I’m sure it was the perfect ‘I  just rolled out of bed morning.’ Where did you get your decor inspo?

Charlotte: I got most of my inspo from my dad. He has really good style when it comes to home decor. All I said was all white- and he took over and made it what it is.

And action! Wait till you see how Chibi owns the camera.

NEDIT_4998-1-2Shop the Ginger Braided Hipster Strap

SLB: This shoot we are doing something a little different, shooting with a Corgi! Did you feel like he was trying to take the spotlight? I mean, Cheebs knows how to work the camera! 

Charlotte: LOL.  Chibi was really fun to work with, especially because if he was doing his thing you knew the photo was going to be really good. However, if he wasn’t paying attention it took a little longer to get the shot, but i think deep down inside he was just trying to be cute and sassy, he knew that we had to wait for the perfect moment to get the shots! And lets not forget that for us to get the shots, it would cost Emily a few dog treats.

NEDIT-IMG_4941-1IMG_7933-1Shop the Rose Quartz Sport Brief

SLB: You said you’re a makeup guru, do you have any special tricks or tips? Your bronzed glow is always on fleek. 

Charlotte: I’m actually so bad at doing makeup. I just love playing with it. But, I think less it always more. Don’t cover your face with makeup. I think the trend recently is to kinda change your face using contour and things like that. But, to just stick to your color, skin texture and shape is always the prettiest, I think.

SLB: As a Beverly Hills local, what are some of your favorite spots and favorite things to do in the area?

Charlotte: Go to Go Greek and get plain tart. It’s seriously my favorite thing on the planet.  Go get it now.

SLB: Everyone has one… What’s your guilty pleasure?

Charlotte: I think playing card games and board games. If it’s ever offered I’m there. Haha.

Charlotte: I really like any of the cheeky bottoms. I think the San Lorenzo Bikini’s bottoms make your bum look so good!

SLB: Lastly, what is one thing you would like our readers to know?

Charlotte: Hmm, probably that this was one of my favorite shoots because not only did I get to play with the cutest little dog, but I also got to shoot in my own bedroom. So a big thank you to San Lorenzo Bikini’s for providing that! ❤

Take a Tour around Kailua

Curious to see how a Kailua SL babe spends a typical July day? We followed around our babes MeliaMichelle and  Cat in order to see how they spend their summer days under the sun. Everything from exploring Kailua, to eating fresh goodness at Nalu Health Bar & Cafe, to shopping around our Kailua store with the besties, to finally ending the day with a kayak & stand up session, our girls make sure to do it in style with their San Lorenzo ‘kinis in hand.

IMG_0028-REDIT

But first, Brunch. We all know there is absolutely no better way to start the day than with a delicious brunch, and when its healthy….that’s a major plus. Our babes took a pit stop at Nalu Health Bar & Cafe to get their day going. Enjoying everything from Acai Bowls to Ahi Tuna wraps to Vitamin Sea Juice we quickly decided Nalu Health Bar & Cafe is our new favorite picturesque spot.

IMG_9048-REDIT IMG_9139-REDIT

Next, we took a walk to Kailua Town Ball Park to work off brunch and warm up for the rest of the day by dancing and cartwheeling around the green grass.
IMG_9302-REDIT

You used to call me on my shell phone (and how pretty are our island style public phones?)

IMG_9405-REDIT

Now for the fun part, shopping around in the SLB Kailua store! Looking through not only the new Summer Passport, the timeless Mind Bali Soul, and all the oldies but goodies, the gals also shopped for clothing and accessories such as One Teaspoon, Quay, and Honey Punch. The girls wrapped up their shopping by stocking up on some new ‘kinis for their later kayaking activities.

Rule of thumb: Never buy a bikini without your besties approval.

Don’t forget to snap a selfie in front of the palm leaf wall! Always use the #SLKailua and you might be featured on Kailua’s insta feed!

IMG_9666-REDIT-2 IMG_9739-REDIT

After the girls bought their new goodies, they made their way around the corner to Kailua Beach Adventures to rent some kayaks and stand up paddle board to cool off after a fun day.

IMG_9774-REDIT

Finally, the girls set out and went past the buoys towards the Mokes. The sun was hot making the water feel cool and refreshing. While the currents were strong, the paddling was quite the workout, but at the same time, ocean is always therapeutic.

IMG_9802-REDIT

Miami Swim Week 2016: Le Romantique

And just like that, Miami Swim Week 2016 is wrapped! This year we debuted our newest collection Le Romantique. Our ambition was to create a powerful experience, a fantasy of infinite travel with french infusion. Envision a girl with a free soul embarking on her travels through Europe and her craving for wanderlust is what drives her passion. Weren’t able to make it? No problem. Keep reading to feel like you were sitting front row at our show & sipping drinks from coconuts at our cocktail party.

We want you all to be able to experience the aloha we felt at this show. You can expect to feel the translated passion from the artisans that handmade each and every ‘kini in the collection. Le Romantique is an ode to the creative spirit. Needless to say, our SL babes absolutely rocked these looks on the runway.

San Lorenzo Bikinis 2017 Collections at SwimMiami - Runway

Everything was carefully selected starting with the french infused music by DJ Godiva that the models walked the runway to. As the show continued, pictures of places from around the world from the owner, Lisseth Figueroa, covered the walls giving the audience a taste of her thirst for wanderlust. Each look was accessorized by Child of Wild jewelry along with head wraps that match our collections prints. Red roses lined the runway causing the audience fall in love with this collection.

The night started out with a magical set up of bright lights around a pool lined with a banana leaf wall. Did someone say Instagram heaven?! We were serving guests yummy drinks in coconuts given to us by COCO & Co mixed with Vita Coco to keep our VIPs hydrated. Miami decided to cool us down with  little bit of rain before our show, but that didn’t stop us.

Meet our Mind Bali Soul Muse: Paige Watkins

Meet our current obsession and second Mind Bali Soul Muse, Paige Watkins! A down to earth babe with stunning and natural features, this 24 year old Florida native has got IT going on, all of it.

We got down and dirty with Paige at the LA Arboretum, where she became one with nature and talked to us about her love of sports and her die-hard infatuation with Mexican food.

First of all, if you weren’t modeling professionally (for the raddest companies in the game), what could we find you doing as a career?

I went to college at the University of Florida and studied journalism and public relations so probably something in that field. Honestly, I love being creative and would be happy working as a writer, whether it be magazine pieces or mystery novels.

With such a fast-growing Instagram following, how does it feel to influencer the younger generations that look up you?

It is really one of the most rewarding parts of my career. I love the opportunity to communicate and be a healthy role model for young girls – especially when social media can have such negative effects as well.

Describe your perfect summer day! Who would you be with? What would you be doing?

My perfect summer day would be a hot California one, driving down the coast, pumping my favorite jams, windows down, bikinis on, hanging with my sisters. And maybe my big fluffy pup Zeppelin too.

What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve had happen to you while on set?

Hands down my most embarrassing moment was when I was doing Mercedes Benz Swim Week a couple years back and there was a tropical storm and I had to run from one show to the other in the rain. I arrived practically half naked and soaking wet to the Wildfox show. All the press was laughing and I had to go down the runway with wet hair. Good thing it fit the theme!

IMG_0153-REDIT-2

Speaking of shoots… what type of shot excites you the most?

I really like all shoots, but my favorites always are on location for magazine layouts or campaigns with a storyline. I like when there is really great creative direction and everyone is working together to tell a story, maybe even evoke emotion.

Lastly, what is one thing you would like our readers to know?

Truly, I feel so lucky to get to work with amazing creative people and brands and have pinch me life experiences. But at the end of the day, I just try and appreciate the little things and I’m happiest just hanging with the people I love.

Take a Tour Around our Ala Moana Store

Rise and Shine! Just another day in paradise for our Oahu Brand Ambassadors Chloe and Kara. We spent the day doing a complete takeover for our Ala Moana store to see a day in the life, which let me tell you was so rad! It included everything from eating at Cafe Lani, to playing around at our store in Ala Moana, to ending the day with an afternoon surf sesh. Lets dive in and take a closer look at how exactly our babes spent the day!

First thing’s first, food! The girls started off their day by heading to the Ala Moana mall to fuel up with breakfast at our favorite cafe in the mall. From lattes to giant parfaits, the girls truly indulged! Cute outfits √ Hungry bellies √ San Lorenzo swimmies √ Mind Bali Soul nail wraps √ and they’re ready to go.

Once the girls were fueled and full, they headed to our store at the Ala Moana mall to do some much needed shopping.

Pssssst, next time you are in the store, make sure to snap a selfie in front of the wall and tag #SLAlaMoana 😉

They were absolutely LOVING the newest Mind Bali Soul collection, which is fully stocked! We can’t think of a better way to spend the day than shopping at your favorite store with your bestie.

An LA native, this 18 year old is a self proclaimed foodie, with a love for all things sushi and pizza.

Let’s start with a classic, what got you into the modeling/ blogging industry?

I was scouted when I was younger by a family friend and slowly started looking into agencies and working for small clothing companies beginning at age 12. Blogging I recently started after graduating highschool because I wanted to do something creative during the downtime I have.

We have to ask, what’s the BEST beach you’ve every been to?

And of course, tell us your favorite Mind Bali Soul ‘kini.

I love the Soul Monokini!

My dreams for the future are to be able to travel somewhere epic for work and to book a movie!
